Welcome to clocs, a range of hand-made wooden clocks by Barry Hankey.

All clocks are are made to a very high quality and are unique designs. They are made from hardwoods, mostly from South Wales, and entirely from sustainable sources. Many are made from fallen timber and a feature is made of the chemical reactions in the wood which produce unique colouring and shapes.

oak ash
